From the home-made rockets and experiments of his childhood to the complex equations he solved as a professor of physics, Bennett always knew he would lead a life of science. But his vision betrays him, revealing a profound incompleteness and an inability to confront the contradictions of his life: the black maid who loves him, the mentally absent father, the self destructive wife who invites his cruelty. As Bennett struggles between reason and intuition, he slowly learns to broaden his understanding of the world and his place in it.
